Screen Highlights August 18

10am | SlowTV Djilba Day

Djilba (August-September) is the fifth season in the Nyoongar Calendar. This is the season of growth, as the weather begins to warm up. Djilba season is a time to look for the yellow and cream flowers starting on mass.
As the season progresses and the temperatures continue to rise, we'll start to see the flower stalks of the balgas emerging in preparation for the coming Kambarang season.
The vivid beauty and life of Perth’s natural wonders are paired with small pieces of information found on the KURONGKURL KATITJIN page of the ECU website.
12pm | Science Week | SCINEMA Screenings: Macro Life
THE BUDS (Switzerland)
3:25 minutes
Directed by Robbie I’Anson Price
The Buds is the product of many hours spent in the botanical gardens of Geneva and many hours spent with the trumpet vine. It’s about intrigue and perhaps the inextricable connectedness of everything and everyone.
THE CARETAKERS (United Kingdom)
21:26 minutes
Directed by Tom Hanner
A journey into the weird, wonderful and truly astonishing lives of the small yet mighty creatures who keep the world turning – beetles.
10:14 minutes
Directed by Katie Garrett
If you’re aiming to glean insights on how animals retain and use knowledge, you might think staring at a pulsating yellow splat on a dead log isn’t very productive. These are slime molds, often avoided amorphous, brainless blobs. For biologist, Audrey Dussutour, researching primitive slimes has led to surprising discoveries about the evolution of learning and collective behavior that she’s been pondering her whole life.
BETWEEN THE TREES (United Kingdom)
22:05 minutes
Directed by Christian Lawes
Between the Trees immerses you in the forest as the hidden complexity of trees and the incredible community they create is revealed. Follow Arne’s journey in the summer of 2020 as he emerges from a lockdown. He ventures deep into the Snowdonian rainforest as he explains the fascinating, slow grown life of forest.
5:30pm | SlowTV Djilba Sunset
6pm | Science Week | NASA: Earth as Art
For over 40 years, the Landsat program has collected spectral information from Earth’s surface, creating a historical archive unmatched in quality, detail, coverage, and length.
In Earth as Art, we display the Earth as our eyes cannot see it—in creative combinations of visible and infrared light. These unreal views of farmland, coastlines, and snowscapes remind us of the powerfully artistic qualities of Earth’s land features.
